ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - D is for ...

I love to dance so "Dance" this week is just perfect for the ABC Wednesday post.

I think the 60s and 70s had the best dance music. So here are some of my favourite songs ....

Dancing Queen - ABBA

Commonly regarded as one of the most successful singles of the 1970s.
First released in 1976, it is considered to be ABBA's signature song.
It was ABBA's only no 1 hit in the US (April 1977). It also hit no 1 in at least 13 other countries including New Zealand.

I spent many hours dancing to "Dancing Queen" .

Save The Last Dance For Me - The Drifters

I love this song.
It was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman and first recorded in 1960 by Ben E King with
The Drifters.
Their version spent three non-consecutive weeks at No 1 on the US pop chart and No 2 in the UK in December 1960.

I chose The Drifters version as this was the original and because D is for Drifters.

I love Michael Buble's version too so check that out here

You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer

Is taken from Leo Sayer's 1976 album Endless Flight and again I danced many hours to this song.
In 2008 he recorded a version with The Wiggles (An Australian children's music group) for their DVD.

Shall We Dance - from The King and I

And to wrap up this post. enjoy this scene from The King and I starring Yul Brynner and  Deborah Kerr -
Shall  We Dance.
